Based on the bad spelling and kak pics I will venture that Mean 469 is Simon Fourie.






 :biggrin: :biggrin:
bad spelling i will take...
but from a guy called "kaboef" mmm ?

Was meant as a joke on Simon, not on you.
You've read Bike SA, I assume?

Thanks for the post on the Explorer.

No beef with you, was merely trying to make a joke.

Cheers

...i dont learn very well :'(

You are a NON Learner my bud
HE HE..its what makes me "special"

its just a tempting invite thats all... we do the very casual dirt thing as regular rides from the shop.
My family have a farm in Pilgrims area, so we enjoy riding all the gravel out there.
so i thought that if a few guys wanted to do a gravel weekend  ( like my mate Gideon ) then they can come join us sometime.
Offer still stands...( the REAL ride chirp is to get interesting comments back haha ) and it works... :pot:
